In FC4 you can create a script with a name ending in ".modules"

Is this preferable to writing a modprobe command in rc.local ?
Is rc.local frowned on now?

Depends when you want the module loaded. rc.local is executed right at the end of the boot process, but rc.modules or /etc/sysconfig/modules/*.modules is much earlier. If you need your module loading for some services to start, rc.local will be too late.
